Vijay Mallya meets Ashwani Kumar over Kingfisher Airlines


As the squeeze tightened over grounded Kingfisher Airlines to pay up the dues of the government, lessors and service providers, its promoter Vijay Mallya today met Law Minister Ashwani Kumar apparently to discuss ways to deal with the situation.
Mallya also visited the Prime Minister's Office at South Block but it could not be ascertained who he met inside, though there were unconfirmed reports of him having met Pulok Chatterjee, the Principal Secretary to the Prime Minister.
What transpired at the meeting with the minister was not immediately known but sources said ways to deal with the airline's tight financial situation apparently came up for discussion.
